A - This beer is a beautiful glowing beige/gold ...like yellow candle wax, it has a translucence despite it's opacity. Sadly, the head is flimsy and only reaches one finger for the first few seconds before turning into soapy dishwater. A small amount of foamy lace slides down the glass.
S - Funky wild yeast notes smell very barnyard-ish and almost nasty. I like nasty! This has orange and carrot juice notes....like V8 Splash or something, and there actually is a sweaty component to this nose.
T - Wow! I liked the nose, but the flavor is great. Orange and pineapple fresh fruit salad with those big funky yeast flavors that I loved in the nose. This actually reminds me very much of Unibroue's Blanche de Chambly.
M - Waxy, lightly carbonated, and heavy. These are actually odd feelings for the style, but I like it! The finish is all tropical fruit and Belgian yeast.
D - Killer. This is a killer, killer brew for the summer! I could quaff this stuff until I puke....not that I would do something like that, but I could.

06/14 On tap. Really nice on this hot muggy afternoon. Most noticeable is the buttery mouth-feel, which I don't mind at all. Not sure the imagery of a Sweaty Betty is all that appealing on a hot summers day, but hey...
07/25/12 On tap. Lemony with out being citrusy, not that that's a bad thing. Clean finish with a medium body.

Summer time calls for lighter beers. Here's hoping Sweaty Betty can deliver. On to the beer:
A little paler thank banana peel yellow with a cloudy body, a thick semi-creamy head, and impressive head retention. The aroma is solid, bringing a watered down banana note, a vague spiciness, and light notes of grass.
Pleasant overall light flavor with enough soft flavors to give you drinking more and more. It's sweet in a creamy kind of way, tasting more like a cream-based dessert than a clean American wheat or full flavored German hefeweizen. Creamy banana is more present here than it was in the aroma, and makes the strongest point of the beer's taste. Subtle clove hits too. The beer has a light mouthfeel with soft carbonation, leading to easy drinkability.
Fair summer refresher out of Boulder, and a better choice than what you'll find at many summer parties.
